When I became the executive director of NCURA in 1997, I was focused on my own continuing education, and I spotted a notice for ASAE's Leading Together Symposium.
Three months later, NCURA's executive committee met for a one-day boot camp (led again by Bud Crouch) and learned about association best practices and what it would take for NCURA to achieve excellence by revising its governance model.
The assistant executive director of NCURA, Tara Bishop, and I represented the staff at the boot camp.
Along these same lines, in 2009 NCURA
called for proposals to establish graduate programs for research administrators.
NCURA lecturers will have the opportunity to apply for adjunct faculty appointments at the College of Medicine.
The Drexel University College of Medicine - NCURA Partnership provides an excellent opportunity for our members to pursue a graduate degree in their professional field," said Patrick Fitzgerald, NCURA President.
Students and NCURA members will also have the opportunity to participate in a career mentorship program.
Schweri's presidency not only provided the Strategic Plan, but his administration's strategic partnering achieved success with NCURA
in the RAPID (Research Administration Professional Information Development) partnership.
According to the NCURA (2005), 1,101 members are based in the Southeastern region.
A list of 501 research administrators who have achieved certification was obtained from the Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC), and the list revealed that 147 of the research administrators who have achieved certification are from the Southeastern region of the NCURA.
NCURA and SRA membership databases were utilized in an attempt to find complete contact information for the 147 certified research administrators based in the Southeast region of the NCURA.
